Having the best track record and always coming out on top might seem to be the sign of a happy workforce. And sure, it is true that on the whole employees that feel both valued and motivated will produce great results. However, on the flip side of the coin there may be a situation arising whereby the fear of unemployment drives them to work harder and longer, and so the results can be similar. Sadly the mentality of the workforce is in stark contrast, and this oppressive atmosphere won’t yield any long-term results.
It is difficult to predict the long-term effects of the recession; suffice to say that business of all sizes will need to tighten their belts and make the best out of a bad situation. Whilst this may sound bleak and many people will lose their jobs, this does not mean that through certain measures being introduced, things can’t improve. For example by making a department more cost effective, it doesn’t automatically mean that there needs to be cuts. Rather that a small investment can make a big change. This small investment could come in the form of a piece of software such as Personnel Manager. This IT solution will bring about a number of changes within the company.
These changes, although initially slow to materialise, will include:
As a result of this introduction the staff themselves will feel that they can speak to HR who will refer to the Personnel Manager system, when they have an issue that they need to be resolved. Whereas in the past it may have been that the HR staff would have been far too busy, Personnel Manager gives them the time to give the employees the attention that they need.
The Personnel Manager software will free up the HR team to speak to all of the employees on a regular basis to assess their current standing in the company and address any concerns they may have. This in itself is invaluable and will really boost the workforces’ sense of belonging. It is very important to ensure that the staff are happy and remain so. The reason being is that the attitude of the staff will directly affect their work; this in itself is a cause for concern as finances are tight and everyone needs to be pulling their weight to help the business survive. But, this works both ways and the employee will need to be able to address the HR department with their problems.
The Personnel Manager software enables the human resources team both the time and the energy to effectively deal with these situations. So that both parties go away feeling that they have achieved their goals and they can effectively move forward form this point. Without the Personnel Manager software this may have taken a lot longer to resolve and unnecessary costs would have been incurred through lost staff hours.
